Structure waterproofing

Cement by nature shrinks over time, resulting in cracks in the plaster and concrete. Water-Cement ratio is not maintained at sites, causing capillaries to form resulting in leakages & dampness. Hence, integral waterproofing should not be ignored while laying down the base.

Recommended Solution

Use LW+ integral waterproofing solution which enhances and modifies the properties of cement during construction.

  • Prevents cracks and dampness
  • Increases the strength of concrete
  • Delays corrosion of steel bars
  • Improves workability of mortar

Conventional Method

Unfortunately, when it comes to structure waterproofing for new home owners, there are no cement additives used. This doesn’t prevent dampness and rusting of rebars.

 

 

FAQ's

Q. What is integral waterproofing? How does it help enhance the life of my structure?

Integral Waterproofing are the compounds to be used with cement while making the new structure. It makes the plaster and concrete dense. So voids don’t form and capillaries carrying water are broken. This serves as an essential structure waterproofing solution for new home owners.

Q. What are the benefits of using an integral waterproofing compound?

We would any day recommend Dr. Fixit Pidiproof LW+ as an integral waterproofing compound. It gives waterproofing to plaster & concrete, resists corrosion in steel bars. It also helps increase the workability of mortar which reduces the rebounds loss. Thus, it helps save time & money.
